Great Deal: Eva Dry 500 for Kegerator Condensation – $25.49 + Hands on Review

81by-5e3kxl-_sl1500_

Like many of you, I use a chest freezer for chilling and serving kegs. Eva Dry Kegerator Condensation The big downside I’ve experienced is with that is… condensation.  Not just beads of water on the sides, I had pooling water in the bottom.  Not a good thing.  This varies by how often I’m in it and the weather, but the fact is, a chest freezer just isn’t designed to deal with condensation like a refrigerator is.

Enter the Eva-Dry E-500.  The Eva Dry contains a desiccant material that absorbs moisture.  As this material absorbs moisture it also changes color.  Dark blue means it’s dry and pink means it’s becoming saturated.  The great thing about the Eva-Dry is that the desiccant material is reusable.  The unit contains a built in heater that drives off built up moisture.  When it becomes saturated, plug it in overnight and it’s ready to go again the next day.  Mine usually lasts a couple months before needing to be regenerated.

I’ve also started using on of these to handle condensation in my fermentation deep freeze.

9/26/16 1:15 PM Central: This E-500 offering has dropped to $25.49.  That’s just $1.06 off the best historical direct from Amazon price I found. Shipping is also free with Prime Membership or a qualifying order. Check the product page for up to the minute price and availability.  See Recent Amazon Finds and our Amazon Fillers Resource Page to help you put together an order that qualifies for free shipping.

This is similar in function to the Eva Dry E-500 that has been featured on Homebrew Finds in the past – Hands on Review.  It contains desiccant material that absorbs moisture (in places like your kegerator).  The desiccant beads change colors as this takes place to let you know when the unit needs to be recharged.  Plugging in the unit activates the built in heater and drives off accumulated moisture.

More about the T742HP

from MoreBeer…

This is our favorite dual-gauge regulator on the market. We’ve used them all and this unit represents the best quality at a great price. Key features are the easy hand adjusted pressure adjustment dial, barbed outlet, one way on/off valve, and built in tank connection gasket. Best of all is the consistent pressure regulation. With many regulators the pressure can ‘creep’ up over time. This unit is a rock. This is the T742HP model where the HP stands for high performance. Won’t freeze up when multiple taps are running at once.

The built-in gasket where the regulator connects to the CO2 tank, eliminates the constant replacement of fiber washers every time you change out your tank. The one way valve keeps beer from flowing back into the regulator when a keg happens to have more pressure than your regulator is pushing. Grey hand dial is easily turned to adjust pressure without the need for a screw driver. Optional available gauge cage is the best on the market. Low Pressure gauge reads from 0 to 60 psi. Built by Taprite, an American company.

General Regulator Information
A regulator controls the flow of CO2 gas that is under pressure. To ensure proper operation, please make sure that when in use your CO2 tank and regulator remain in an upright position. Do not physically modify the regulator in any way.

Regulators work best at room temperature. If you use your regulator in the cold it will take up to 4 hours for the adjustment to register. For example: If you are at 10 PSI and you change the pressure to 12 PSI the regulator will move to 14 or 15 PSI over the next 4 hours. Once you have found the correct pressure the regulator will work perfectly fine but it will take some trial and error to get it adjusted.

More Tips & Tricks:

1. Are you out of CO2? When the needle reads half way in the red you are about 10% full. You should be able to push another 2-3gallons of beer when your at this amount of remaining gas.
2. What is an ideal serving pressure? For most beers a pressure set at 10-12PSI is the sweet spot. Your beer has to be stored cold from 34-40F for this pressure to work properly.
3. Is your beer serving a lot of foam? Don’t panic this is not hard to fix. Your beer line must be 5-8 feet in length for this to work. Turn the black check valve to the close position (as pictured). Release the pressure from your keg’s relief valve. Lower the pressure to 6-8psi by turning the flat head screw on the front of the regulator counter clock wise. Open the black check valve releasing CO2 to your keg. Try serving your beer.
4. Is my beer over carbonated? Any beer that is stored under pressure above 12psi will become overcarbonated. If you’re trying to speed up the process to carbonate your beer by raising your pressure anywhere from 15-20psi make sure you don’t leave your beer at this pressure for more than 2-3 days. If you did this you will need to release all the pressure from the keg before serving and set your serving pressure at 4-6psi depending the carbonation of your beer. After a week you will have to raise your pressure back to the optimum 10-12psi serving pressure.
